Q. What is the new Kaltura Capture recorder?
This June we're replacing the current CaptureSpace recorder with a brand new one called Capture. You can use the new Capture recorder from June 17th 2019 and the current CaptureSpace recorder will stop working on the 30th June at 11:59pm.
What is the new Capture recorder like?
The design of the new recorder will hopefully make it easier than ever to create videos from your desktop. The new recorder has been built from scratch and lays the groundwork for some powerful capture features coming in the future.
Kaltura Capture offers you the ability to easily capture both screen and camera. It also now includes a new automatic slide detection feature which means if you have a PowerPoint presentation in presenter mode when recording your screen, Kaltura Capture automatically detects and captures it, making your video much more searchable.
Kaltura Capture uploads new videos into your My Media folder and makes them available on MediaSpace as well as our Blackboard VLE for teaching and for assessment. It enables academic staff, students, faculty, and other users to create a professional video with multiple feeds, including slides. It can be used for video assignments, assessments, feedback, demonstrations, course content creation, blog posts, administration communications, alumni outreach, and sharing information between institutions.
How do I install the new Capture recorder?
We have put together a series of FAQs which will help you install the new recorder and quickly and without any technical issues. If you do need help then either contact the Learning Technology team or log a support ticket with IT Services and we'll help get you started. Remember you can also book a place on one of our scheduled training courses or arrange a 1:1 with your Faculty Learning Technologist for personalised training.
We hope you enjoy using the new Kaltura Capture Recorder.
